Belly Up – Capsized Golden Ray

Photographing the Stricken Golden Ray along the Beautiful Georgia Coast

Capsized Golden Ray - Jekyll Island, GA

When my good friend, Ed, called me up out of the blue on Tuesday morning, I knew I was in for an adventure. On our last photo excursion, we enjoyed being eaten alive by gnats, nearly being swallowed by a waterspout, and being deluged by a pop-up thunderstorm. Yet, when Ed asked if I’d like to photograph the Golden Ray, which had capsized in the mouth of Saint Simons Sound a few days earlier, I couldn’t refuse. Thankfully, this adventure was far less eventful, though every bit as interesting as our last excursion.

An Autumn Stroll Among Long-Forgotten Nova Scotia Photos

Nova Scotia in Autumn - Hall's Harbour

Sometimes, a trip down the rabbit hole can be a rewarding experience.

It was on just such a day that Bryn and I visited the Isles of Shoals for the first time back in July of 2017.

Longing for Cooler Climes

A Reminder of Winter on This Hot Florida Day

We’ve hit a seasonal milestone here in Florida – one that is unique to photographers and glass-wearers that inevitably signals the coming of summer in Florida. This week, while on a shoot, I ventured from inside an air-conditioned Winn-Dixie to the outside, and instantly, my lens fogged up – a sign of the humidity and accompanying heat that comes with a Florida summer. Full disclosure, I do not care for Florida summers – and so for my fellow sufferers, here’s a sampling from our winter collection – a chilly reminder that this too shall pass…
